YUM stands for Yellowdog Updater Modified. It is a software package manager that installs, removes, and modifies packages on RPM based Linux distributions
Features of YUM
  • Fast operation
  • Simple interface and easy to configure
  • Multiple repositories supportable

In this tutorial I am going to install YUM server in Redhat 6, similar steps to be followed for CENTOS, SCIENTIFIC LINUX

Host Name: server.dcageek.com and my system IP Address: 192.168.152.131

Login to your server and mount the OS DVD in to your media or mnt folder

Step 1: Install the vsftpd Package to share the Repository in our client systems
         #rpm –ivh vsftpd-2.2.2-6.el6.i686.rpm
Start the service vsftpd
                #service vsftpd start

Step 2: Install the deltarpm package
                #rpm –ivh deltarpm-3.5-0.5.20090913git.el6.i686.rpm
Step 3: install the Python-deltarpm package
                #rpm –ivh python-deltarpm-3.5-0.5.20090913git.el6.i686.rpm
Step 4: Install the Createrepo package, it is used to create our local repository
                #rpm –ivh createrepo-0.9.8-4.el6.noarch.rpm

Step 5: Create a new folder called yumPackages under /var/ftp/pub/ to save all the rpm files from rhel dvd
                #mkdir /var/ftp/pub/packages
                # cp -ar *.* /var/ftp/pub/packages



 


Step 6: After copying all the rpm files to our specified location create a repo file yumserver.repo in the location /etc/yum.repos.d/

                #vi /etc/yum.repos.d/yumserver.repo
Type the following in the repo file

[yumserver]
name=dcageekyumserver
baseurl =file:///var/ftp/pub/packages/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1



Step 7: Create the repo file for our local yum server
            
                #createrepo –v /var/ftp/pub/packages


 
Step 8: That’s it yum server is configured in server. Now do the cleaning and update process
            
                #yum clean all
                #yum update all


Step 9: Check Yum Server is working or not by updating, removing or installing a package


Thas it Yum server is configured


Client side Configuration

Create a repo file in yum.repos.d directory

Type the following in the repo file

[yumserver]



name=dcageekyumserver

baseurl =ftp://192.168.152.131/pub/packages

gpgcheck=0

enabled=1

Save it, clean it  and update it.
